Back in the Publisher’s Clearinghouse days it was probably tempting to pocket one of those $10,000,000 checks. You know, just slip it in the pocket like a valet at the Ivy. Maybe that’s why they made them so darn large… I wonder if winners have to bring the checks to a bank and if they make them sign that large as well.

Well, the face of Publisher’s Clearinghouse is now facing a potential clearing of his own house while foreclosure threatens. Sad to see how widespread this is becoming. At least he has his daughter/wife/daughter-wife, I’m so confused… anyway, he looks like he’s dealing with this…
